We bet you get asked pretty frequently for opinions/feedback on projects, you popular so-and-so. This section is not to say that you should always reject feedback requests, but it is important to protect your time from the people who won’t appreciate it. We find that being polite, but firm works best. Don’t leave much room for debate. If they still respond and provide a reasonable, compelling case, then feel free to help out. But we've found that this approach weeds out about 75% of these requests if you’re feeling especially swamped.
